Why is Konfabulator "Pretty?"

Bill and Tom,

You may be interested to know that I have started doing something  
vaguely along these lines in revolution. Rather than the konfab  
approach, I have taken the mozilla one (konfab is a thing of the  
past, the *new* thing is mozilla ;-) ). XUL is an xml specification  
to define interface components. XBL or eXtensible Binding Language  
allows you to attach behaviors to XUL's XML elements.

Used Together, you can define interface components that are  
interchangeable between applications and even interchangeable between  
different programming environments.

I will post more information soon (demo included). Hopefully next week.
